Common Questions and Answers about Pregnant itchy skin


Avatar f tn It usually disappears right after delivery. You may also find that things that normally make you itchy, such as dry skin, make you even itchier when you're pregnant. Eczema often worsens during pregnancy, though some women find that their condition actually improves. With psoriasis the situation is reversed: Many women report less severe symptoms during pregnancy, while a few find that being pregnant makes their psoriasis worse.

Avatar n tn i have had this uncontrollable itch for the past 6 months, at first i thought it was chigger bites from working in the garden but it has been 6 months since i worked in the garden and im still itchy. I am 8 months pregnant and have talked to my doctors about it and they cant seem to figure out what is the matter. They have prescribed me tons of different creams from chigger bites and scabies.

Avatar f tn I am 20 wks and the last couple days I have been really itchy even though my skin is not dry. It's not on my belly either, just my arms and legs. Is this normal during pregnancy or do I need to see my dr? I have an apt on friday and I plan on talking to him about it but I just read some stuff saying it could be something wrong with your liver and it kind of freaked me out... Should I wait until Friday or call my doctor tomorrow?
Avatar f tn today is actually my due date for my first child. I had him at 20weeks. He was stillborn. So im pregnant again and my skin is really itchy. I haven't changed soaps or detergent In at least a yr. I didnt experience this with my first pregnancy. I was just wondering if this is normal?
Avatar n tn Hello, Itchy skin that isn't accompanied by other obvious skin changes, such as a rash, is most often caused by dry skin (xerosis). Other conditions cause itchy skin as well. Skin conditions like psoriasis,dermatitis and hives, internal diseases like liver and kidney disorders,diabetes, iron deficiency anemia, irritation and allergic reactions to chemicals,wool,soaps,cosmetics and certain foods can cause itchy skin. You can apply an anti-itch cream or lotion to the affected area.
Avatar f tn I'm 25+5 and my skin is itchy all over. I've read it van be normal but I've also read it can be ICP I guess its a liver condition and it usually starts around the 25th week.

I've had two normal pregnancies before no complications and this is my third.

Avatar m tn Hello, Itchy skin that isn't accompanied by other obvious skin changes, such as a rash, is most often caused by dry skin (xerosis). Dry skin usually results from environmental factors that you can wholly or partially control. These include hot or cold weather with low humidity levels, long-term use of air conditioning or central heating, and washing or bathing too much. Itchy skin on the arms and hands can be also be due to Eczema or contact dermatitis.
